She makes each class fun, each class different, and is patient and kind. Additionally, phone app is GREAT, and makes it so easy to book a class, see the schedule, see when payment is due, and it really makes a difference for a person with a busy life.

  • Pilates Golf training with Shannon has improved my ability to maintain my spine angle and increased my upper and lower body rotational separation.

Thanks, EnCore!
